Message: “Newborn Babies” from Josh Coya

NewSong

A message from the series “1 Peter.” To a world that often equates comfort with success and pain with failure, the Way of Jesus speaks a convicting, challenging and surprising word. At the same time, it offers a strong welcome to the weary ones who long for rest, for refreshment, for a new perspective and a better story. Let us draw in close together and listen to Peter’s words to his friends, and find ourselves renewed to face whatever comes our way.

Message: “Words With Friends – Church” from Grant Myles-Era

NewSong

A message from the series “Words with Friends.” This is the final message in our series about the words we use and more importantly, the words we use to talk about our understandings of God, or human spirituality and in particular, Christianity. What does it mean for the church when so much of what has been constant and familiar has been drastically altered? Does what we mean when we say, “church,” have particular meaning for these moments? Let’s consider these questions together for the glory of God and the benefit of our communities.

Message: “Words With Friends – Hell” from Grant Myles-Era

NewSong

A message from the series “Words with Friends.” The concept of Hell has been heavily influenced by all sorts of cultural images and ideas both secular and religious. At the end of the day is this something that anyone should even take seriously any more? Some Christians lament the rarity of “good old fashioned hell-fire and damnation” sermons and point to Jesus as the example of this type of evangelism. What might be a faithful and perhaps “Mere Christian” understanding of this concept, and how might it fit into the big picture of God’s redemption of all of creation? Join us this weekend to explore this challenging subject.

Message: “Words With Friends – Grace” from Josh Coya

NewSong

A message from the series “Words with Friends.” Grace is such a common word in our lives and faith that we can take it for granted. What is grace? How much is too much grace? Doesn’t grace cheapen our faith? In scripture, grace is tied closely to our salvation so these questions can create problems not only with our understanding of the word but with our relationship with God. This week we’ll see what it means for our lives when God functions in grace.

Message: “Words With Friends – The Holy Spirit” from Grant Myles-Era

NewSong

A message from the series “Words with Friends.” The story of the work of God in the time since Jesus’ earthly ministry ended, is the story of the Holy Spirit. Let us together, as friends, consider who He is and how we might engage purposefully with His presence and power in our lives and thus be witnesses to the Good News of the Gospel and the Kingdom of God.
